Cal OES Announces new "Prepare California" Notice of Funding Opportunity, Plus Updated HMGP Timeline

The California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) recently announced an update to the timeline for the 2021 funding opportunity for FEMA’s Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP). In addition, Cal OES announced a new one-time, state-funded initiative (“Prepare California”) to help socially vulnerable and high hazard risk communities jumpstart their progress toward greater resilience through advanced outreach, technical assistance, and funds to subsidize local mitigation and resilience initiatives.

Please review the updated Notice of Funding Opportunity linked below for further details on the revised HMGP timeline and information on two new opportunities for funding under the Prepare California Initiative:

·    The PrepCA Jumpstart program will provide capacity building funding for eligible socially vulnerable and high hazard risk communities.

·    The PrepCA Match program will cover 100% of the local cost share for HMGP for eligible socially vulnerable and high hazard risk communities.

This information and additional resources are available on the Cal OES HMGP webpage.
